Stout Centennial defense shuts out Bakersfield

Cesar De Leon threw a pair of touchdown passes, but the Centennial defense was the real star as the Golden Hawks shut out Bakersfield, 19-0, on Friday on the road at Griffith Field.

The Bakersfield Californian is reporting it was the first time the vaunted Drillers had been shut out in 11 years.

After the game, the Centennial defenders more or less said that was the game plan.

“That’s our goal every week: No points, not an inch,” Centennial defensive tackle Brandon Stout told the Bakersfield Californian. “We did our jobs, all 11 guys. We’re like a well-oiled machine.”

De Leon went 12-for-18 for 173 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, plus he rushed seven times for 42 yards. Cole Beatty was his top receiver with three catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Golden Hawk running back Brandon Robinson added 17 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown.

The Golden Hawk defense held Bakersfield to three yards rushing in the game.

BHS quarterback Keayr Gragg completed 11-of-20 passes for 126 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions.
